Collection of letters by Major Henry Livermore Abbott written to family and friends during the Civil War.
Victorian-era novelist Wilkie Collins was one of the most popular and successful writers of his day, ranked by some as equal in influence and acclaim to his friend and mentor Charles Dickens. Like Dickens, Collins' novels take a hard look at the social problems of the period in the context of an engaging, often addictively paced, narrative. Fallen Leaves recounts the lives of four women, each of whom has chosen a distinct path but whose fortunes are inextricably linked.
John Stepp was born in about 1710. His parents were Joshua Stepp and Martha Coffey. He married Ann Salmon March 27, 1731. They had at least five children. John died in 1751 in Culpepper County, Virginia. His son, James, was born in 1733 in Orange County, Virgin- ia. He married Lucy Gholston. They had eight children. James died in Madison County, Kentucky. Descendants and relatives lived in Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia and elsewhere.
This overwhelmingly hot summer everything seems to be slowing down in the tiny Devon village where Alison lives, as if the sun is pouring hot glue over it. 'This idn't nothin',' says Alison's grandmother, recalling a drought when the earth swallowed lambs, and the summer after the war when people got electric shocks off each other. But Alison knows her grandmother's memory is lying: this is far worse. She feels that time has stopped just as she wants to enter the real world of adulthood. In fact, in the cruel heat of summer, time is creeping towards her, and closing in around the valley.
